Two doors are provided in each panel to gain ready access into the interior of the pickup box when the cover is closed. A support means is attached to the frame and each panel to hold the panels in their vertical or horizontal positions. Each panel also has attached to it and the cover frame a means to assist in moving the panels relative to the frame when swinging the panels into their vertical or horizontal outward and closed positions. This means may be a dual torsion assembly connected to the frame and panel which controls the weight of the panels by using torsion bars.

Therefore the objects of the invention are to provide a novel cover for a pick-up truck having doors to gain access to the interior of the pick-up box when the cover is closed, to provide a support means in said cover to secure the panels in various positions, and to provide in the cover a means to assist in moving the panels to their various positions.

Other objects and advantages will be apparent from the following detailed description and accompanying drawing of the preferred embodiment.

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE'DRAWINGS FIG. 1 is a perspective view showing a portion of the pick-up truck with the cover mounted thereon in a closed position with two doors open.

FIG. 2 is a perspective view with a portion broken away showing the cover mounted on a pick-up truck and open to a vertical position.

FIG. 3 is a perspective view of the means to assist in moving said panel relative to the frame or the dual torsion assembly part of the cover.

DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENT Referring now to FIG. 1 a cover 2 is shown mounted on the load carrying box 4 of a pick-up truck. The box includes the usual hinge mounted tailgate 5. The cover 2 has two panels 6, 8 and each panel 6, 8 has two doors l0, l2 and 14, 16 respectively, attached by means of hinges 20, 22 and 24, 26 respectively, to allow access into the interior of the pick-up box 4 when the panels are closed.

As shown in FIG. 2, the panels 6, 8 are hinge mounted to a U-shaped frame 28 so as to be able to swing outward along the longitudinal parallel sides of the load carrying box 4, when the cover 2 is attached to the pick-up. The U-shaped frame 28 fits along the front and parallel longitudinal sides of the load carrying box 4 and may be secured thereto, preferably in the interior of the box, by any suitable means, such as bolts or screws, not shown. To compensate for minor deviations in the widths of various pick-up boxes the frame 28 is constructed of hollow square tubing in the bottom of the U (at the front of the pick-up box) and is halved into two symmetrical L sections 30, 32. A hollow extension 34, fits in telescoping relationship over the two sections 30, 32 and is secured thereto by bolts to provide an adjustable width to the cover.

In order to hold the panels 6, 8 in a vertical or in an outward horizontal position a support means 36 is attached between each panel and the frame 28. The support means 36, shown attached to panel 6, includes a flange 38 on frame 28, a triangular shaped plate 40 attached to flange 38 to rotate about pivot 42 in a parallel sliding relationship, and an arm 44 attached at its one end to the panel 6 to rotate about pivot 46 and attached at its other end to plate 40 to form a pivot 48. Holes (not shown) in plate 40 are provided to register with hole 50 in flange 38 when the panel 6 is in a vertical or outward horizontal position. A lock pin may be placed through hole 50 in flange 38 and a corresponding hole in plate 40 to support the panel in either the vertical or outward horizontal positions. A mirror image support means is provided for panel 8.

The Cover 2 includes a means to assist in moving the panel relative to the frame. Such a means may be an adjustable dual torsion assembly 52 as shown in FIG. 3. The torsion assembly 52 includes two torsion bars 54, 56 two right angel plates 58, 60 and two links 62, 64. Each torsion bar 54 and 56 is bent at right angles at both ends. At one end a lug projects out from each torsion bar. The two right angle plates 58, 60 each have a series of holes arranged in an arc. As shown in FIG. 2 angle plate 58 is secured to frame 28 at the top of one leg of the U and angle plate 60 is secured to frame 30 at the bottom of the U. The lug on torsion bar 56 fits into one of the holes of angle plate 58 and torsion bar 56 is attached at its other end to the forward end of panel by means of link 64. The lug on torsion bar 54 is fitted into one of the holes on angle plate 60 and torsion bar 54 is attached to panel 6 at its rearward end by means of link 62. The torsion assembly provides an assist in lifting the weight of panel 6 uniformly throughout its length when moving the panel to vertical or horizontal outward or horizontal closed positions. By positioning the lugs in the different holes in angle plates 58, 60 the degree of assist in controlling the weight of the panel from the torsion assembly may be varied. The torsion assembly 52 also helps to transfer loads imposed on the panel when in a horizontal outward position back into the frame 28 attached to the pick-up. A mirror image torsion assembly is provided for panel 8.

The four doors, 10, l2, l4, l6 operate independently of each other and can be locked for theft protection. The cover provides an all-weather cover for the pickup bed. The two panels 6, 8 can be locked from the inside to prevent their being opened. The tail gate 5 can be lowered without interference to the cover itself.

If it is desired to haul a tall or bulky load, the two panels are moved to the vertical position and locked into position by the support means 36. The frame 28 may contain sockets to affix tubing or bars, providing the equivalent of a headache rack.

If it desired to use the pick-up for camping the panels may be moved to the outward horizontal position. A tent and bow attachment may be affixed to each panel and when erected, provides k tent for each panel. These two tent-halves are locked into position at the top, with zippers for each end which makes an allweather tent affixed to the pick-up cover.

Supply boxes 70 may be placed across the front of the pick-up bed, as well as on the right and left side of the pick-up bed. The right and left side boxes may be interchangeable.

As is readily evident this cover has a great deal of versatility and can be used for farm, camping, or industrial use.
